We are pleased to offer 1966 Corvette 427/425 hp Coupe s/n 194376S113318. From new in Tuxedo Black #900 with a Silver #426 interior and believed to be the only Factory built 427/425 hp Coupe with this elegant black-on-silver color combination. Also fitted from new with the Big Block L72, 427/425hp cu. in. engine with solid lifters and a single Holley #3247 4-barrel carb, putting power to the ground through a M21 4-speed Close Ratio Heavy Duty 4-speed trans and 4:56 rear gears. Chevrolet had stated the potency of the earlier 1965’s high performance 396 Big Block at 450 hp, but that number was quickly revised downward in 1966 to 425 hp due to substantially higher insurance premiums. The 1966 427/425 was, in truth, a tire-smoking monster developed from a series of special engines Zora Arkus-Duntov and his performance-oriented Corvette team had built while track testing the Corvette’s four-wheel disc brake system, and the resulting all-new 1966 Corvette’s four-wheel disc brakes had the stopping power to match the power and torque of the Big Block 427.

1966 Corvette 427/425 hp Coupe s/n 113318 was completed at the St. Louis MO plant in Feb., 1966 in Tuxedo black code #900 with a silver code #426 interior. She was sold new to an unknown California owner and was fitted with flared wheel wells, wider American mag wheels and racing slicks for racing in SCCA as a Solo 1 car. We have commemorative entry plaques that come with the car from multiple Solo 1 events in California including Van Nuys in 1967; Foothill, Portland and other events in 1968 and the Orange County International Raceway and other southern California events in 1969. At some point  427/425 hp Coupe s/n 113318 became a proverbial barn find and was in long-term storage for many years. We believe that in the early 2000’s our feature 427/425 hp Corvette s/n 113318 was dug out of the proverbial barn (undated photos on file) and completely disassembled, the engine, trans and diff were removed for a complete rebuild, the body was lifted from the frame and the frame was sand-blasted and repainted to better-than-new standards. The body panels that were replaced because of the fender flairs were original NOS GM panels. The body was blocked sanded and painted to better-than-new standards in a gorgeous black with its correct matching silver code #426 interior. The 427 engine, M-21 trans and diff were all rebuilt. The numbers matching engine was dyno tested on 31 May, 2007 at an impressive 477.7 hp at 5,700 rpm with 513.4 lb ft of stump-pulling torque at a mere 3,600 rpm! We have photos of the engine on the dyno and the dyno sheets on file. Today 427/425 hp Coupe s/n 113318 features a gorgeous older restoration with an excellent body and paint that need nothing, offering staggering performance and style. Stomp your neighbor’s 365 GTB/4 Daytona into the ground at less than 1/5 the price. She shows 42,436 miles.

Our feature Corvette is from new with power windows and is fitted with the Corvette code N14 side pipes exhaust and the Corvette code P48 cast-aluminum knock-off wheels, although we do not know if these were fitted from new. She starts easily and settles into an explosive, big block, loping idle echoing from the side pipes. The throttle delivers a crisp rasp with every tap of the pedal, and a none-too-subtle rock to the entire car. The M-21 trans is precise, the clutch is progressive and pulls away smoothly thanks to the 427s massive torque. Once rolling the car shifts well and moves smoothly through traffic, even in southern California’s bumper-to-bumper traffic. Serious acceleration is awesome and demands the driver’s full and complete attention, thanks to the shocking amount of serious torque. Steering is precise while cornering and road holding is well-controlled and confidence-inspiring. The Disc brakes are effective and offer a level of peace of mind that complements the big block engine nicely. Driving this 427 Corvette, one truly appreciates the capability these cars offer as affordable, historically significant, high performance road cars.

The body fit and finish are very nice with correct gaping at the doors and hood line. The retractable headlight doors are smooth and fit very well, opening and closing per factory specifications. The gleaming chrome plated bumpers fit correctly and are properly aligned to the front and rear body contours, while the finish is in excellent condition. The chrome trim, badges, and various exterior elements are wonderfully finished, showing a fine luster, clean detailing, and proper fit to the body.
